SOFTLINE Coating

A polymer comprised of hydrophilic and hydrophobic areas

Overview

A challenge for perfusion: In extracorporeal circulation systems, blood continuously comes into contact with foreign materials.

The problem

Blood proteins and cells can be adsorbed and the clotting system activated. The possible consequences for the patient range from thrombosis and inflammation to organ failure. But how can the biocompatibility of the surfaces be increased in order to reduce complications?

The solution

The heparin-free SOFTLINE Coating. It is a polymer comprised of hydrophilic and hydrophobic areas, reducing surface tension on the contact surfaces. In oxygenators, centrifugal pumps, reservoirs, and tubing sets, the advantages of this coating are revealed in every detail.
